Pluots® are some of the sweetest fruits (with 16–24 Brix) which is probably why Pluots® dominate the Dave Wilson Nursery Taste Tests. The Pluot® is "interspecific," a complex hybrid of 70 percent plum, 30 percent apricot. Smooth–skinned like a plum, the Pluot® is sturdy and durable with luscious plum flavor and a hint of apricot. It has the chin–dripping juiciness of a fully ripe plum without the notoriously tough tart skin and the astringent center typical of the parent plum.
Semi–dwarf on Citation rootstock (except Splash on standard Myro–29C can reach about 15'–25' unpruned). These semi–dwarf trees will reach 3/4 of standard (about 8'–14'). Trees are 2 years old, and should begin to fruit in their 4th or 5th year.
All our dormant trees (except Pecan trees) and berries come with a limited replacement guarantee.
For best success, be sure to choose a tree that will grow in your USDA zone, has an appropriate number of chill hours for your climate. If a pollinator is needed, make sure they're planted within 50 feet of each other and will bloom at the same time. Finally, what are your desired harvest intervals (all at once for canning or spread out for fresh eating)? Enjoy!
PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION
When placing your bare root orders, please be aware that AS SOON as the trees/plants are available to ship (Dec. for trees, Jan. for plants), we will begin shipping IMMEDIATELY - no matter where you are located !!!
There are several factors why we must ship immediately:
ATTENTION "POLAR VORTEX" AFFECTED CUSTOMERS
When your order arrives, you should remove it from the outside elements before nightfall. If you will not be present at the destination when the order will be delivered, you should either ship the order to another location or make sure someone will be there to take care of your order.
While your order is hardy enough to withstand freezing temperatures in its box, you definitely should not leave it outside in sub-zero temperatures for days on end.
AS IMPORTANTLY, you then need to open the box, remove the trees/plants from their plastic bag, store them in a basement, cellar or garage, covering their roots with sand, dirt, sawdust or wood chips (do not use cedar that is toxic to the trees) and keep them moist until you are able to plant them in the ground in Spring.
